Chemical Distributors Hill Bound to Fight Regulations

It's a busy week for fly-ins next week. Joining the realtors and the retailers are the chemical distributors.

More than 60 members of the National Association of Chemical Distributors will be on the Hill next Thursday for about 200 meetings with lawmakers and their staffs. The Hill visits are part educating lawmakers about the industry and its internal health, environmental and safety measures, and part advocacy.

A top priority is discussing what the NACD's Jennifer Gibson called regulatory overreach by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation and other agencies.

"It seems to be getting worse and worse," said Gibson, the vice president of regulatory affairs. "We're seeing things that are burdensome that don't really do anything for safety."

The chemical distributors will also be talking with their lawmakers about chemical facility security, among other issues.

The fly-in marks the first for Joseph Stanton, who joined NACD as its vice president for legislative affairs this week.
